Walk To End Lupus 2021
Join us on 10.16.21 as we unite as one lupus community! Pick a location to walk individually or with your team anytime on 10.16.21 (we recommend a 1-2 mile walk). Show us your spirit by wearing your purple and posting photos to social media using hashtag #WalkToEndLupusNow. Not able to walk? That's okay! Be sure to join us for our virtual celebration and share why you are supporting the Lupus Foundation of America. If you download the app then you can connect with fellow participants and share on the Why I Walk wall. I've formed my own team to help raise awareness. Sign up to raise money and/or donate as well by clicking here

Resources for available assistance programs

The Assistance Fund (TAF) provides direct financial assistance to patients covering a wide range of serious and chronic diseases.

To find out if you qualify for assistance, go to their website (click here) and select your disease from the list (purple circle indicates that funds are available). If the program is open, simply click the "Apply For Assistance" button to continue to the next step. If the program for your disease is closed, keep checking back periodically. We may be able to reopen programs if new funds become available.

If you need help completing the application form, please contact a Patient Advocate.
